4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but a bit expensive, 1 May 2014
This review is from: Fujifilm 27mm Fujinon XF Lens for X-Pro1, X-E1, X-M1, X-E2 and X-T1 - Black (Accessory)
I purchased this lens primarily due to it's size. It is a very compact and lightweight lens that changes the character of the XE-2 I have it fitted to, from a mini SLR feel, to the feel of a large compact camera. As the reason I switched to a mirror less format was to make my camera truly portable, I wanted as small a lens as possible to be able to fit the camera in a coat pocket and this lens is the smallest one out there. The 27mm focal length is a good compromise allowing for both portrait and landscape shots and f2.8 is just about fast enough.

I have managed to get some great photos with this lens and it is ideal for group shots. Focus speed is good and better than the 35mm or the 18-55 lens. It also means I have my camera with me more often and is usually the only lens I have on my camera.

The reason I have knocked off a star is that I think the price is a bit on the high side for what is a simple pancake lens with no aperture ring. As stated before it is also not that fast and has no image stabilisation. I was lucky enough to find this lens 2nd hand in my local camera shop in perfect condition so have not paid full price for it. I think the full price is a bit of a stretch, best to wait for the Fuji lens offers to come around again.
